Pride and Prejudice: Bringing stories out of the closet is a groudbreaking project to reveal the sometimes hidden LGBT histories of objects held at National Museums Liverpool’s art galleries and the Museum of Liverpool. The results of what the team have uncovered can be found on the project web pages, with more to be added at the end of this month.
